California Interfaith Power & Light is made possible through the assistance of interns and other volunteers. Please contact us if you’d like to explore lending a hand to our work. A BIG thank you to our former interns. Our current interns are:

sarasamuelsonSara Gross Samuelson

Sara hales from the Pacific NW, where care for creation and work towards a greener planet has always been a part of her awareness and call to action. Currently, Sara lives in Berkeley and is finishing up her internship year as a candidate for ordained ministry in the ELCA. She spends the rest of her time when she’s not at CIPL working with the wonderful people of University Lutheran Chapel in Berkeley. When she’s done here, she’ll be looking for a call to a congregation where she hopes to use her work with CIPL by encouraging communities to have voice in environmental public policy.
